Afternoon matches in Day 4 of the UAAP Season 81 Beach Volleyball Tournament were cancelled due to inclement weather.

With Ateneo de Manila University leading by one over Far Eastern University in the first set, 10-9, the match was temporarily stopped due to the thunderstorm. Strong winds and heavy rains plagued the venue with occasional lightning and thunder. Players took refuge in their respective tents as they waited for the weather to improve.

Twenty five minutes after the initial stoppage and the weather still not cooperating, officials cancelled the game and the rest of the matches lined up for the afternoon.

The cancelled games in the women's division include the Ateneo Lady Eagles versus the FEU Lady Tamaraws, the UP Lady Maroons against the UE Lady Warriors and the De La Salle Lady Spikers versus NU Lady Bulldogs. Those matches will be played on Friday instead.

The Ateneo-FEU match will be played again from the start with scores back to zero.
